A little boy was so determined to stop the Grinch from stealing Christmas that he called 911 for backup.
TyLon Pittman, 5, was watching videos on a cell phone on Saturday about the Grinch's plan to ruin the holiday when he called 911 to ask the cops in hometown of Byram, Mississippi, for help.
Officer Lauren Develle heard about the call and drove over to let TyLon know that the police would make sure the Grinch's plan would not succeed.
In a video posted to Facebook by TyLon's older brother, the officer asked TyLon what he would do if the Grinch tried to steal Christmas.
"I want y'all to come back to my house and take him to jail," he said.
TyLon meant business when it came to stopping the Grinch. He even showed the officer the video of the Grinch on his phone to show her what he was dealing with.
"You thought the Grinch was going to steal your Christmas, for real?" his mother asked.
"He steals everybody's Christmas,'' Tylon said.
The police department then invited TyLon to come down to the station and lock up the Grinch after he was caught, according to local paper.
TyLon, who wants to be a police officer one day, was made an honorary junior officer for the day. He helped escort the Grinch from a police car to the holding cell at the station.
